Scary Scott by Katie Dale, illustrated by Irene Montano – gold book band.
Scary Scott is a ghost, all he wants is to have some friends but everyone is scared of him! When Halloween comes around he is the only one who doesn’t need to dress up. The school Halloween party is great fun until all the children decide to reveal who they really are underneath their amazing costumes. Scott’s about to run away so they all don’t get scared of him when some bullies stop them and take their sweets.
Can Scott get the sweets back from the bullies?
Will his new friends still accept him once they realise he is an actual ghost?
Katie Dale’s creation is a wonderful story of friendship and self-worth. Irene Montano’s illustrations, especially the facial expressions, are a superb match.
